      I recommend using a darker beer. I used Nut Brown Ale.<br/><br/>The smell of the liquid marinate was not all that appealing - in fact, it really wasn't good at all. However, the taste it imparted on the steamers was beyond compare! I had people that didn't like steamers all that much, raving about the taste of the clams! I credit this recipe. In fact, several claimed these were the best they ever had!
